Abstract:

Reviewing Galbraith's classic examination of the 1929 financial collapse, The Atlantic Monthly said, "Economic writings are seldom notable for their entertainment value, but this book is. Galbraith's prose has grace and wit, and he distills a good deal of sardonic fun from the whopping errors of the nation's oracles and the wondrous antics of the financial community." For this edition, the celebrated economist has written a new introduction with fresh insights on the legacy of our past and the consequences of blind optimism and power plays within the financial community.
